Five Islands cottage description

Perched on a rise overlooking the sea, the rustic cottage is a stone's throw from the rocky shore. Ledgemere is located in one of the most beautiful coastal areas of Maine. Five Islands (Georgetown) is about an hour north of Portland, 20 minutes from Bath, Maine. This quaint lobstering community still holds the charm of an era gone by. A true getaway, we invite you to experience all that Five Islands has to offer. The cottage is very warm at night or during inclement weather. There is plenty of parking, and it is easily accessible.
Kids and dogs just love this place as they can explore all over the woods or be at the beach in seconds and explore for sea treasures and take a quick dip. It is the perfect place if you are launching a kayak or a canoe....very quickly and easily.
Located at the mouth of Sheepscott River and the Atlantic Ocean, this rustic cottage sits just off the rugged coastline. It is a 'memory box' to the many families that have visited over the past 150 years.
It is a bird watchers paradise and a fisherman's dream, where children can frolic on a mile long coastline or dip in a fresh water pond!
If your mouth is longing for a tasty clam basket or lobster just pulled out of the icy waters, Five Islands is the home of the 'Big Boys!'
Mid-coast Maine is home to wonderful artists and craftsman including the Wyeths and Zoracks.
The cottage is a 'Merry Meeting Place' where it is okay to have a little sand between your toes. It is comfortable, welcoming and has everything one needs without modern day distractions.
Feel like shopping? Freeport, the home of L.L. Bean is just a 30 minute drive; Boothbay Harbor is across the bay where you can jump on a boat and see whales, dolphins and seals; Reid State Park is 10 minutes on the other side of the island and fantastic eateries abound in the area!
We welcome you to Ledgemere, the cottage by the sea where you can breathe the fresh Maine air!

  • Swimming and water sports are abundant on Georgetown Island, Maine. There are two large ponds on the island where there is communal swimming, kayaking or canoeing. The ocean surrounds the island and one can jump in anywhere with a little beach about two minutes from the cottage and then a mile and a half long beach on the other side of the island. Actually, the long beach on the other side of the island is called Reid's State Park and it has picnic areas, swimming (surf and lagoon), river running, or even clam digging. There are boat ramps so that one can drop a boat in easily and take off from Georgetown to head out for a miraculous day of boating. You are going to love this area of mid-coast Maine....moreless

The cottage is located such that hiking and boating is ideal. Deciding where to hike and to go boating are the BIG decisions of the day. Five Islands is located at the mouth of the Sheepscot River and the Atlantic Ocean, so you literally can launch your boat from anywhere and take off for the day. There are so many exciting things to do, so you can drop your anchor or tie up and picnic on an island, go bird watching, go clam digging, watch local artists, eat lobster, or take in a garden tour.

About the owner: Our family has been making the pilgrimage to Five Islands for over one hundred and fifty years. We consider it a gift from God. We are happy to have the opportunity to share it with others. Once you visit Five Islands, you too may be making the annual pilgrimage.

The cottage is on Ledgemere Road which is the last road that you pass before you come to the end of 127 and run onto the wharf. It is perfectly situated to access everything in Five Islands. It is easy to get to and there is plenty of parking. The water is good and plentiful. Water access to launch a boat or kayak is every where one looks. It is warm and cozy with everything that a family would need in any type of Maine weather or season.
